The CIS Department is very proud to announce that it sought and received approval to change the name of three of its degree programs. Starting in Fall 2015, the B.S. in Competitive Intelligence Systems and M.S. in Competitive Intelligence Systems will be known, respectively, as the B.S. in Data Analytics, and the M.S. in Data Analytics. In addition, the fully-online M.S. in Competitive Intelligence Systems degree program will also be changed to the M.S. in Data Analytics.
In order to be consistent with the degree name changes, INFS3510 Competitive Intelligence will be changed to INFS3510 Intro to Data Analytics and INFS6510 Competitive Intelligence will be changed to INFS6510 Intro to Data Analytics.
The curricula of all three programs will remain exactly the same.
The CIS Department did extensive research of the Business Intelligence/Business Analytics field and feels that these updated program names are more consistent with industry and will allow our graduates to be more marketable and competitive in their career search.
